THIS IS HOW IT ENDS: Thousands Of Scientists Sign ‘Warning To Humanity’ Letter Predicting An Imminent Apocalypse

The just issued warning from the science community in the article below may seem dire, but in fact, the warning falls far short of reality.  Issues like the ozone layer collapse are completely glossed over in this new warning which simply pushes the official lie that the ozone layer is recovering (which, again, is patently false). The worsening ozone layer collapse alone has the potential to cause planetary omnicide in the next decade (or less) and that factor is not even considered in the warning from the scientists. Our collective reality will not be the same for much longer, collapse on many fronts is imminent and now very close. We are already well into the curve of the 6th mass extinction on our planet, is there any chance of salvaging what is yet left of Earth’s life support systems? Perhaps that depends on that actions we collectively take, or don’t. Time is not on our side, as the biosphere collapse becomes impossible to hide, the power structure will become more desperate and dangerous than ever. We must all do our part to sound the alarm, life on Earth is in the balance.

Warm Waters Tripled The Amount Of Ice Lost In These Antarctic Glaciers — And That’s Bad For Sea Level Rise

The four glaciers are grounded, they’re not floating

Between 2008 and 2012, warmer than usual waters caused four glaciers in Western Antarctica to flow toward the sea faster than any other glacier on the continent. The glaciers also lost more than three times the amount of ice than usual, according to new research. All these changes are bad news for Antarctica — and us. As grounded glaciers melt, sea levels around the world rise.

The four glaciers described in the study, published last week in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, are located in Marguerite Bay, on the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula. This is the northernmost area of the continent, and the one most susceptible to rising temperatures. Researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) found that 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than usual waters in the area doubled the glaciers’ speed toward the sea, and more than tripled the amount of ice they lost — up to 33 feet a year, from 7 to 10 feet a year.

Geoengineered Western US Meltdown To Cool The Rest Of The Country, Again

The Western US has, at minimum, long since become a climate sacrifice zone for the geoengineers. The current NOAA departure from normal high temperature "forecast" map is below. This map reflects nothing less than the "scheduled" weather from primary climate engineering contractor, Raytheon, who does all the forecast modeling for the National Weather Service (NWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In this completely engineered scenario, ionosphere heater induced record shattering heat will bake the Western US while potential record cool temperatures may occur in the Central US. The scenario shown below has been repeated by the climate engineers countless times since 2007.

88hg

The HAARP ionosphere heater installation in Alaska is only one of many large radio frequency / microwave transmitters located around the world that are utilized for climate engineering purposes.

776f

When the ionosphere is bombarded with the massively powerful RF / microwave transmissions from installations like HAARP, high pressure heat domes can be created and maintained. In the case of the current record shattering high pressure heat dome over the US West, the clockwise spin of upper level air currents around the high pressure zone allow the weather makers to steer cooler air from the Pacific into the center of the country while completely bypassing the West.

88gr

Though the "official" forecasted record highs in the West are alarming enough, the actual temperature readings on the ground are now significantly higher than the "official" readings in almost all locations monitored by GeoengineeringWatch.org and others.

66gr

The latest "Temperature Departure From Average" map shown below is very revealing in regard to the true state of global temperatures. Where is it cool? Where not? The coming climate engineering cool-down in the eastern two thirds of the North American continent truly stands out. Antarctica also stands out as a focus of the global climate engineering assault, a primary element of which involves chemical ice nucleation for weather modification. Due to the recent collapse of the immense Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica, the climate engineers appear to be fully engaged in an increasingly desperate and destructive attempt at damage control in the polar regions.

998r

The increasingly radical swings in Greenland melt extent is another glaring red flag in regard to the on and off engineered cool-downs which include chemical ice nucleation as a major factor. The extreme fluctuations in the Greenland surface melt graph below are alarming and indicative of the ongoing climate engineering assaults in the region.

99ur

Sea surface chemical ice nucleation processes are also being utilized on a massive scale. The swirling patterns left from chemical ice nucleation materials on the sea surface are very clearly visible in the NASA satellite image below (east coast of Greenland). Such patterns are also clearly different from the usual broken ice mosaic seen in the upper right of the satellite image.

66tre

The power of chemical ice nucleation elements must be seen to be believed, the lab test shown in the 15 second video below gives a glimpse.

Arctic ice mass (volume) has dropped precipitously in recent decades and is now at dangerously low levels. In the attempt to hide this fact from the public for as long as possible, the climate engineers have decimated the planet and the atmosphere as a whole.

77yf

The very short animation in the video below is even more revealing in regard to the true state of the Arctic ice volume implosion.

Where are the US temperatures predicted (scheduled) to go in the coming months? The NOAA long term forecast map below reveal the accelerating warming that will soon become impossible to deny for even the most willfully blind.

yyg3

Again, the record heat / record cool weather whiplash scenarios (that has now become the norm in the US and the world) is completely engineered, completely unnatural, and until the recent past, meteorologically unprecedented. Why would the climate engineers carry out such scenarios? Because engineered cool-downs (like the one currently slated for the eastern two thirds of the country) continue to fuel the division and confusion in the population as to the true extent of damage to the climate system (which global geoengineering is making exponentially worse overall while simultaniously destroying the ozone layer). The climate engineering manipulated cool-downs are, of course, only temporary. They are also highly toxic due to the geoengineering jet dispersion of chemical, heavy metal particulates and polymer fibers.

Just as there can be no legitimate discussion of the state of the climate without first and foremost addressing the global climate engineering assault, there can also be no legitimate discussion of climate engineering without addressing the constant engineered cool-downs and the chemical ice nucleation factor. Chemical ice nucleation is a primary element in the ongoing climate engineering assault. If climate engineering is to be effectively exposed and halted, this critical aspect of the equation must be understood and addressed. While the majority of the masses are still allowing themselves to be distracted with power structure orchestrated political theater, the biosphere is collapsing and every breath we take is being contaminated with the toxic fallout from the climate engineering operations. How long till the power structure plays the WWlll card as a final option? What are your priorities? Make your voice heard in the critical battle to expose and halt the global climate engineering / weather warfare assault, and for the greater good.

Geoengineering The Polar Regions: The Chemical Ice Nucleation Factor

556t1
Share

Dane Wigington
GeoengineeringWatch.org

It's official, one of the largest icebergs ever recorded just broke off from Antarctica. This extraordinary ice calving event happened in spite of it being the middle of winter at the South Pole. It happened in spite of the all out climate engineering chemical ice nucleation assault being carried out on both polar regions.

Due to extreme intimidation by the current administration and its fossil fuel industry / military industrial complex appointees (previous administrations as well), the science community is generally afraid and thus unwilling to speak candidly about the Larsen C collapse (or climate engineering), its causes, and its ramifications.

Chemical ice nucleation processes must be seen to be believed. The vast majority have no idea how powerful chemical ice nucleating / endothermic reacting materials are. The vast majority have no idea that such chemicals are being utilized by the global climate engineering cabal on a massive scale. The use of such patented processes is not just for engineering winter storms on a rapidly warming world, but the same chemical elements are being used to artificially / chemically nucleate ice on sea surfaces. Power structure funded disinformation individuals and sources, of course, never mention chemical ice nucleation (and its use by the geoengineers) while putting out completely false information about "global cooling" or "global warming is a hoax".  Such false narratives are extremely harmful to the critical cause of exposing and halting climate engineering. Such false narratives are also exactly what the power structure and the climate engineers want. The climate science community also toes the line for the power structure and the geoengineers by never mentioning the ongoing climate engineering insanity in any way. To do otherwise is a very bad career decision, or worse. The illegal federal gag order on all National Weather Service (NWS) and all all National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) employees (courtesy of the Obama administration) is further proof of this fact. Sea surface chemical ice nucleation creates extremely anomalous patterns that resemble a chemical spill dispersion (because that is exactly what these patterns are). The recent NASA satellite images below (taken in the polar regions) provide shocking proof of these sea surface patterns.

Historically unprecedented completely uniform "ice balls" are now often showing up along the shores of water bodies where ice nucleating materials are being dispersed.

1002

"Ice balls" on the Baltic Coast in Northern Poland. "Official" sources say this recent unprecedented phenomenon is just "natural", are we to believe them?

1001

"Ice balls" have formed and accumulated on Lake Michigan in the last few years, why? Such "ice balls" have even formed on lake water that was 40 degrees, how is this possible at temperatures far above the normal freezing point? Without chemical ice nucleation, it isn't possible.

1003

Ice balls on the coast of Finland. The "official" explanation for this recent mysterious anomaly? Again, we are told this historically unprecedented phenomenon is just a "natural" occurrence.

For decades, the climate engineers have been able to mask the true degree of planetary meltdown with various processes like chemical ice nucleation (the Chinese government openly admitted their use of chemical ice nucleation for weather modification). But we must consider at what cost has this grand deception come? Geoengineering has created short term toxic cool-downs at the cost of an even worse overall long term planetary warming. Not only are all climate engineering elements highly toxic, but by chemically nucleating sea surfaces in the polar regions the climate engineers are actually preventing rapidly warming seas from releasing their heat. This in turn is further fueling the thawing of formerly frozen methane seabed deposits. The releasing methane then greatly contributes to feedback loops which, in turn, radically worsen the overall warming of the planet. Over a 10 year time horizon, methane is over 100 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than C02.

66tdd

Global sea ice extent (surface area) has continued to decline rapidly in spite of (and in many ways because of) the decades long global climate engineering / chemical ice nucleation programs. "Official sources" have also long since resorted to manipulating data in order to help hide the implosion of Earth's ice deposits (the cryosphere). For example, any sea surface area in the polar regions that has 15% or more of surface slush is "officially" considered to be part of the ice pack. Isn't such an area of sea surface still 85% open ocean? Of course.

ggt3

The volume, or mass of the sea ice, is the real bottom line.  Even with the unimaginably extensive sea surface chemical ice nucleation onslaught by the geoengineers, the Arctic sea ice volumes have continued to plummet as shown in the graph above.

hhg4

The color-coded ice mass / thickness graphs above are a further illustration of the rapid ice thinning in the Arctic.

ggf2

Temperatures in the far north are rising rapidly as is reflected by the increasingly sharp decline of freezing degree days, as shown in the above graph. 

7782yh2

The GISS temperature anomaly map above reflects the changes that are rapidly occurring on our planet.

727yu1

A recent GISS high temperature anomaly map reflects even more accelerated warming, especially in the Arctic.

In addition to utilizing climate engineering / solar radiation management, and chemical ice nucleation, to cover up the true extent of planetary warmimg (while actually worsening the overall warming scenario in the process), various data sources have also been manipulated in the past in order to further mask the unfolding climate meltdown. Recent assessments of all data sources has now made clear that not only was there never any "hiatus" in the rising temperatures, the planetary warming is actually accelerating rapidly.​

rrfd

All available data indicates that the overall global climate engineering assault has been further ramped up under the Trump administration, especially over the polar regions shown in the surface temperature map below.

88ju

The "Temperature Departure From Average" map below further reveals the areas of concentration for climate engineering orchestrated chemical cool-downs and sea surface chemical ice nucleation (also fueling extreme hail events). The extremely varied temperature extremes are indicative of the "weather whiplash" effect being created by global geoengineering programs. Greenland, Siberia, and Antarctica, should be noted as climate engineering concentration areas due to the grave ramifications posed by the melting ice and / or frozen methane deposits in these regions. But, again, this must be remembered and considered, the climate engineers are further worsening the overall long term warming of the planet in their attempt to mask the warming over the short term. This is in addition to geoengineering programs shredding the ozone layer, totally disrupting the hydrological cycle, and completely contaminating the biosphere.

rr4e

As the state of the climate and biosphere rapidly worsens, the more aggressive disinformation sites and sources will become in the attempt to cover up the threat. Sites and sources that do not post credible and verifiable front line data. Sites and sources that are proficient at putting out pacifying lies that the majority of the population chooses to believe because the unvarnished truth is very difficult (but necessary) to face. Disinformation sites and sources try to claim that there is nothing wrong with the climate (while completely omitting any mention of climate engineering), that the oceans are fine, the environment is fine, and that anyone who says otherwise is just an "alarmist". The disinformation sites often simply cite past predictions from various individuals and sources (that have not yet come to pass) as proof that everything is fine because Wal-Mart is still open and McDonalds is still selling Big Macs. Anyone that chooses to believe such a baseless argument for "everything is fine", is a part of the problem. Denial won't save us, denial won't save the planet on which our lives and our collective reality depends. A truly healthy mind does not run from the truth, rather, it is willing to face it head on, no matter how dire the truth is. On the current course (short of a complete change of direction by our species), our days are numbered. The greatest and most immediate threat we face, short of nuclear cataclysm, is climate engineering (which also must be considered weather and biological warfare). The greatest leap we could collectively make in the right direction at this late hour is to fully expose and halt the ongoing climate engineering insanity. Geoengineeringwatch.org continues to do our best to provide the tools and information necessary to assist activists in their efforts to wake those around them to the geoengineering assault, please, help us to sound he alarm.

Arctic Sea Ice Is Ebbing Faster Than Normal, And By September It Could Bottom Out At A Very Low Level

This animation consists of false-color images of the Russian coast and adjoining East Siberian Sea acquired by NASA’s Aqua satellite. On June 18, the offshore waters were choked with sea ice. By July 6, 2017, a lot of it had broken up. In the false-color scheme, land is green, black is indicative of open water, and ice is a light turquoise. The darker blue prominent in the June 18th image probably is indicative of melting snow and ice that’s causing liquid water to accumulate. (Images: NASA Worldview. Animation: Tom Yulsman)

Under frigid winter conditions, the Arctic’s floating lid of sea ice typically expands to a maximum extent in March. But thanks to human-caused global warming, that maximum seasonal spread of the ice has been shrinking over the years — and this past March it reached the lowest level ever observed for the month.

ROME, Jun 23 2017 (IPS) - Record high temperatures are gripping much of the globe and more hot weather are to come. This implies more drought, more food insecurity, more famine and more massive human displacements.

In fact, extremely high May and June temperatures have broken records in parts of Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the United States, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported, adding that the heat-waves have arrived unusually early.

Another month is in the global temperature record books. While May just missed setting a record, the data is another reminder that climate change is making the world hotter and pushing it into a new state.

This May was the second-warmest May on record, according to NASA data released on Thursday. The planet was 1.6°F (0.88°C) warmer than normal last month, trailing 2016 by just a 10th of a degree.

The Thawing Arctic Threatens An Environmental Catastrophe

Commercial opportunities are vastly outweighed by damage to the climate

“DUE to the global warming, please keep the Snowhotel door closed” reads a sign at the entrance to what appears to be a giant white mound near Kirkenes, close to Norway’s Arctic border with Russia. The owners want to preserve the frozen friezes of unicorns, reindeer and butterflies that adorn its walls. Patches of translucence in the ceilings of the hotel’s 25 icy rooms suggest the warmth outside is winning. Artificial snow helps build the structure anew each November and it usually disappears before May. The season has shortened in recent years, says one employee; the cold comes later than before.

The Snowhotel’s lengthening off-season is a small sign of an immense transformation in the Arctic, where the environment is changing more rapidly than in the rest of the world. Little can be done to keep its white wastes intact. A great thaw is inevitable as the climate responds to an accumulation of carbon emissions in the atmosphere. International efforts to limit global warming will at best slow the changes, perhaps making the consequences merely terrible rather than catastrophic.

Climate Engineering Completely Manipulating Precipitation

For many decades a covert global collaboration of governments has participated in the complete manipulation / disruption of the planet's weather and climate systems. There are many agendas being carried out in our skies by these global powers, none of these agendas are benevolant. The degree to which the weather-makers can manipulate precipitation is difficult to fully comprehend, the effect on populations and the planet has been devastating. The NASA satellite image below reveals extreme aerosol spraying operations being carried out in the Eastern Pacific over major flows of atmospheric moisture migrating toward the West Coast of the US.

GeoengineeringWatch.org 4476

A large component of the jet aircraft sprayed aerosols are electrically conductive heavy metals like aluminum and barium. These elements assist the weather makers with their constant manipulation of precipitation events.

Extremely powerful radio frequency / microwave transmissions are another primary means by which the weather makers manipulate heavily aerosolized flows of precipitation. The very revealing animation below clearly illustrates the effects from a powerful radio frequency / microwave transmitter near Beale Air Force Base, California. By these methods those in power can effectively migrate rain over some regions and allow it to come down elsewhere, often in the form of a highly destructive deluge. The climate engineers decide where it rains, and where it does not. They decide how toxic the rain will be, or if a zone will be temporarily cooled down by chemical ice nucleation processes. From drought to record flooding deluges, the geoengineers are the ones pulling the levers. In addition to the climate intervention insanity, it is important to also remember and consider the countless other forms of anthropogenic damage to the climate system and the planet as a whole. 

Large incoming cells of precipitation are completely dispersed by the Beale transmitter with none of the migrating rain actually precipitating past the transmitter site.

This next NASA image is a shockingly clear illustration of the climate engineering process already addressed in this article. A massive cloud formation off of the US West Coast has blatantly obvious signs of heavy aerosol spraying. This formation also has extremely unnatural borders due to radio frequency / microwave transmission manipulation

GeoengineeringWatch.org 446

The image above was captured as a massive high pressure dome was being set up over the US West Coast. This rain blocking heat producing scenario (termed the "ridiculously resilient ridge") was a primary causal factor in the record shattering California drought. Though much of California has been allowed to receive substantial rains this year, devastating drought could be put back in place by the climate engineers at any time.

The NOAA precipitation "forecast" (scheduled weather) map below is the latest example of the now unprecedented precipitation patterns.

gg4

Geoengineering is completely disrupting the global hydrological cycle.

A primary purpose of precipitation dispersion / migration / manipulation is to create largest possible expanse of cloud cover / haze, and to keep the moisture aloft and available for creating precipitation events and/or chemical ice nucleated cool-downs. Extreme weather whiplash scenarios are increasingly the norm as the desperation of the climate engineers continues to manifest.

dd5

Meteorologically unprecedented and completely engineered hot and cold zones now blot global temperature maps.

Every engineered (and highly toxic) chemical cool-down event that the geoengineers carry out comes at the cost of an even worse overall warming of the planet. It comes at the cost of an even more damaged ozone layer and an even more contaminated biosphere. The human race has inflicted countless forms of damage to our once thriving planet (with the ongoing geoengineering insanity at the top of the list). How much more can the planet take before complete biosphere implosion? If we remain on the current course, we will very soon find out. Every single one of us is needed to help sound the alarm, make your voice heard.

Its true that not all the sea ice is gone yet, but much of what remains is thin enough that the light passing through it is allowing algae blooms. In many places it is cracked and subject to being broken up by storms which due to the extremes of heat and cold confronting each other in that region have extremes of wind and wave.

This is one reason the IPCC has moved up its next report date from 2022 to 2018

The Jacobshaven Glacier delivering 10% of the ice melt from Greenlands ice caps to the sea no longer flows at a glacial pace but rather is retreating at 10 km/yr with the rate of retreat increasing at an increasing rate just as with the sea ice.

Geoengineering, Methane Eruptions, And Imploding Arctic Ice

Massive methane eruptions are pushing the planet toward Venus Syndrome. The climate engineering cabal is completely committed to chemically ice nucleating the polar regions in an unimaginably desperate and destructive attempt to cover up the unfolding methane catastrophe. For well over 70 years global powers have been consistently ramping up covert climate engineering programs that have now all but completely derailed the planet's life support systems. Without the knowledge or consent of their populations, governments around the world colluded and collaborated on the organization and deployment of incredibly destructive climate "intervention" programs that are further fueling the catastrophic consequences of anthropogenic activity on planet Earth. Of all the forms of decimation the human race has inflicted on our formerly thriving biosphere, the ongoing geoengineering assault is mathematically the most ominous and destructive.

Earth's climate during the past 10,000 years has likely been the most stable in the history of our planet. The miraculous energy balance, previously maintained by our atmosphere, has now been completely destroyed. In an unimaginably desperate and insane attempt to hide the extent of biosphere damage (due to countless forms or human activity including climate engineering) from unsuspecting populations for as long as possible, the global power structure may have sealed our fate. Climate engineering/intervention programs are NOT about the common good in any way, shape, or form. Rather, such hubris is about power and control, period. The planet is now reacting and responding to the damage done, the signs are ominous.

Scientists have discovered as many as 7,000 gas-filled "bubbles" expected to explode in Arctic regions of Siberia after an exercise involving field expeditions and satellite surveillance, TASS reported.

Trump' Defense Secretary Cites Climate Change as National Security "Challenge"

“Climate change is impacting stability in areas of the world where our troops are operating today,” Mattis said

“It is appropriate for the Combatant Commands to incorporate drivers of instability that impact the security environment in their areas into their planning.”

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) warned Tuesday that the drastic shifts seen in the global climate system that resulted in a range of alarming records last year appear to be continuing unabated.

"We are now in truly unchartered territory," David Carlson, head of the World Climate Research Programme, said in a release from the WMO.

Arctic sea ice has just set yet another record low, breaking the former record low level set last year. The power structure and the geoengineers who serve it are increasingly desperate to mask the unfolding Arctic cataclysm. Why? To avoid panicking populations in order to maintain the current paradigm (and thus their stranglehold on power) till the last possible moment.

Does this mean climate engineering is somehow for the greater good? Such a notion could not be further from the truth. Climate engineering programs are actually fueling the overall global meltdown while poisoning the entire planet in the process.

Security Challenge

James Mattis’ unpublished testimony before a Senate panel recognizes a threat others in the administration reject or minimize

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has asserted that climate change is real, and a threat to American interests abroad and the Pentagon's assets everywhere, a position that appears at odds with the views of the president who appointed him and many in the administration in which he serves.

In unpublished written testimony provided to the Senate Armed Services Committee after his confirmation hearing in January, Mattis said it was incumbent on the U.S. military to consider how changes like open-water routes in the thawing Arctic and drought in global trouble spots can pose challenges for troops and defense planners. He also stressed this is a real-time issue, not some distant what-if.

The recent NASA satellite images shown below reveal astoundingly anomalous sea surface ice formation patterns taking place in various regions of the Arctic (in spite of record high ocean temperatures). The anomalous ice formations are the result of climate engineering and chemical ice nucleating materials

GeoengineeringWatch.org 992

GeoengineeringWatch.org 2212

The patterns of ice formation along the perimeters of the ice resemble a chemical spill pattern of dispersion. Why? Chemical ice nucleation elements are being used. The power of these endothermic reacting materials is nearly beyond comprehension. Spherical ice balls forming on 40+ degree waters in Lake Michigan are only one example.

Given all the information already covered in this article, are the climate engineers actually helping to cool off the Arctic overall? No. When an artificially/chemically nucleated ice cap is engineered over an already overheated Arctic ocean, the ocean heat is trapped below this artificially enhanced engineered ice cap. The warmer seas then continue to thaw and thus release even more methane deposits from the sea floor. This process is further fueling feedback loops that are pushing the planet into a runaway climate shift.

Climate engineering is not mitigating the unfolding abrupt climate shift, it is exacerbating it.

The current rate of biosphere change is so extreme and non-linear that many statistics are going "off the charts".

Climate engineering and atmospheric experimentation are greatly contributing to our rapidly disintegrating climate system. Life on Earth is now in completely uncharted territory, all life on our planet is in the balance. Are we powerless to alter the current equation? That answer remains to be seen or known. The final outcome will depend on what we collectively do, or don't do.

Rate Of Ocean Warming Quadrupled Since Late 20th Century, Study Reveals

The buildup of heat-trapping greenhouse gases is warming the upper ocean four times faster than during the period 1960-1990, according to new research.

The paper, published today in the journal Science Advances, is the latest effort to piece together current and historical measurements from ships, self-propelled floats, satellites and even seals to get a global picture of how the oceans are faring under rising temperatures.

Since the 1990s, more heat is finding its way to the deep ocean and there has been no change of pace in ocean warming since 1998, compared with the previous decade, the paper notes.

The study marks a step forward, but the authors say they are concerned about the future of ocean science, given the political climate in the US. Dr John Abraham, professor of thermal sciences at the University of St Thomas in Minnesota and co-author on the paper, tells Carbon Brief:

“We are seeing dramatic cuts planned for climate science. There is every reason to expect these cuts will include ocean-sensing systems.”

The Great Greenland Meltdown

From a helicopter clattering over Greenland's interior on a bright July day, the ice sheet below tells a tale of disintegration. Long, roughly parallel cracks score the surface, formed by water and pressure; impossibly blue lakes of meltwater fill depressions; and veiny networks of azure streams meander west, flowing to the edge of the ice sheet and eventually out to sea.

The scientists flying over the world's largest thawing chunk of ice have selected a particularly auspicious summer to be studying the melt. The edges of Greenland's 1.7-million-km2 ice sheet regularly melt in summer, even in years when the ice sheet as a whole grows because of snowfall in its higher, colder center. But in 2016, the melting started early and spread inland fast. By April, 12% of the ice sheet's surface was melting; in an average year the melt doesn't reach 10% until June. And just before the scientists' journey, a violent river of meltwater, one of hundreds coursing out from the ice sheet, swept away a sensor, bolted to a bridge to measure the water's turbidity. It was the second time in 4 years such a device had fallen victim to the liquid fury of the glaciers. "I've been doing these trips for years, but I've never seen so much water," the helicopter pilot told the researchers.

Climate Engineering, Cooling Wealthy Nations While Poorer Countries Incinerate

How is it possible that the abrupt climate shift unfolding on our planet is not creating nearly as much heat in wealthy nations as compared to poor countries? This, now statistically proven scenario, is yet another glaring red flag to confirm the ongoing global climate engineering insanity being carried out by militarized / industrialized nations. Highly toxic and environmentally devastating global geoengineering programs are a primary tool and weapon of the more powerful nations. The worldwide weather modification assault has been used to confuse and divide populations in regard to the true state of the climate and the true extent of the threat that we collectively face. The ongoing effort by the climate engineers to mask the full degree of climate damage from first world populations has been aggressive and consistent.

Recent studies have now proven that a completely unnatural global temperature scenario is taking place which would not be possible without the existence of ongoing climate intervention programs. Temperatures in high income nations are rising at a far slower rate than low income nations

Based on an average of three data reanalyses, the researchers found the percentage of hot days each year in low-income countries rose from a base of 10 per cent – or 37 days – during the 1961-90 base period to 22 per cent – or 80 days – by 2010.By contrast, rich nations had the percentage of hot days rise much slower, from 10 per cent to 15 per cent, or 37 to 55 days.

These graphs show an astoundingly unnatural scenario which is virtually impossible without massive climate intervention programs.

"It's not good for low-income or high-income countries but it's particularly worse for the low-income countries as they are the ones which can least afford to adapt," (Dr. Nicholas Harold from the Climate Change Research Center at the University of New South Whales).

Poorer nations typically have far smaller accumulated or annual per-capita greenhouse gas emissions than industrialised ones. With the uneven warming trends likely to continue, poor nations have a case for demanding rich world assistance to cope with climate change… Poor countries have "contributed the least, but in terms of temperature effects, they will suffer the most".

Even within the boundaries of wealthy nations, the climate engineering signature of completely out of balance temperature contrasts are clearly visible. Geoengineered weather whiplash continues to batter the US (and other nations) with historically unprecedented abrupt temperature swings and shockingly stark temperature boundaries.

Each color tier in the NOAA long-lead forecast map above (the scheduled weather) represents a temperature departure from normal of 3-4 degrees (blues for below, reds for above). Temperatures 25 or 30 degrees above normal will persist in regions of the southern US while incoming Pacific moisture will continue to be chemically ice nucleated to cool down the Pacific Northwest.

Antarctic sea ice extent has been commonly referred to by "global warming is a hoax" disinformation sources as "proof" that the planet is not warming. The latest sea ice data from Antarctica is reflected in the graph below. The sea ice at the bottom of the world is at record low levels and still plunging. Geoengineering can and is creating short term highly toxic cool-downs at the cost of an even worse overall warming and an accelerated climate disintagration.

In the graph below a slight statistical decline of global temperatures can be seen after the peak warm year of 1945. This 30 year temperature "hiatus" from 1945 to 1975 perplexed climate scientists that were unaware of the geoengineering / solar radiation management programs that had been deployed just after WWll.

As the countless negative consequences of climate engineering began to manifest in the mid to late 70's (and the greenhouse gas buildup continued), the military industrial complex simply doubled down on the geoengineering insanity. They have been doing so ever since.

Though there are countless forms of anthropogenic damage to the planet, climate engineering is the single most destructive of all (short of nuclear cataclysm). What can we do to expose and halt the global geoengineering assault? Each of us can do a great deal to help with advancing this most critical cause, but we must all take action if we are to have any chance of changing directions.

NSW and Queensland brace for hottest February day on record, putting paramedics on high alert.

New South Wales is expected to experience its hottest February day on record this weekend with emergency services on high alert for catastrophic fire conditions.

A state-wide total fire ban has been declared for Saturday as the mercury was set to soar past 40C.

“If you’re a little bit inland from the coast in Sydney or the Hunter district, you’ll experience probably mid-40s,” senior forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Andrew Haigh said. “That goes for anywhere west of the ranges as well.”

‘Beyond The Extreme': Scientists Marvel At ‘Increasingly Non-Natural’ Arctic Warmth

The Arctic is so warm and has been this warm for so long that scientists are struggling to explain it and are in disbelief. The climate of the Arctic is known to oscillate wildly, but scientists say this warmth is so extreme that humans surely have their hands in it and may well be changing how it operates.

Temperatures are far warmer than ever observed in modern records, and sea ice extent keeps setting record lows.

Abnormal Antarctic Heat, Surface Melt, Giant Cracks In Ice Shelves — More Troubling Signs Of A World Tipping Toward Climate Chaos

Around its edge zone, and from glacier top to ice shelf bottom, Antarctica is melting. Above-freezing surface temperatures during the austral summer of 2016-2017 have resulted in the formation of numerous surface-melt ponds around the Antarctic perimeter. Large cracks grow through Antarctic ice shelves as warmer ocean currents melt the towering glaciers from below. The overall picture is of a critical frozen region undergoing rapid change due to the human-forced heating of our world — a warming that has brought Antarctica to a tipping point, for such fundamental alterations to Antarctic ice are now likely to bring about a quickening rate of sea-level rise the world over.

Surface Melt Visible From Satellite

During 2016-2017, Antarctic surface temperatures ranged between 0.5 and 1 degree Celsius above the already warmer-than-normal 1979 to 2000 average for most of Southern Hemisphere summer. While these departures for this enormous frozen continent may not sound like much at face value, they’ve translated into periods of local temperatures up to 20 C above average. As a result, measures around Antarctica along and near the coastal zone have risen above the freezing mark on numerous occasions. These periods of much-warmer-than-normal weather have in turn precipitated widespread episodes of surface melt.

What The World Would Look Like If All The Ice Melted

If we keep burning fossil fuels indefinitely, global warming will eventually melt all the ice at the poles and on mountaintops, raising sea level by 216 feet. Explore what the world’s new coastlines would look like.

This story appears in the September 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine.

The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.

There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58.

East Antarctica is remote even by Antarctic standards. Harsh winds and ocean currents have largely cut off the region from the rest of the world.

That’s left its massive stores of ice largely intact, especially compared to West Antarctica where a massive meltdown is underway that could raise seas by 10 or more feet in the coming centuries. But as carbon pollution warms the air and the ocean, there are signs that the region’s stability is under threat. Two new studies of different ice shelves — tongues of ice that essentially act as bathtub plugs — have seen major melting that could portend a less stable future for the region.

So first, about those ice shelves. They are indeed like bathtub plugs. Except instead of keeping water in a tub, they keep ice on the continent of Antarctica. That’s good because when it ends up melting into the ocean, it causes seas to rise. East Antarctica contains about two-thirds of all the ice in Antarctica so its stability is crucial for the world’s coastal areas.

Climate Change Escalating So Fast It Is ‘Beyond Point Of No Return’

New study rewrites two decades of research and author says we are 'beyond point of no return'

Global warming is beyond the “point of no return”, according to the lead scientist behind a ground-breaking climate change study.

The full impact of climate change has been underestimated because scientists haven't taken into account a major source of carbon in the environment.

Dr Thomas Crowther’s report has concluded that carbon emitted from soil was speeding up global warming.

The findings, which say temperatures will increase by 1C by 2050, are already being adopted by the United Nations.

November Was A Bad Month For Arctic Sea Ice. The Overall Picture Is Much Worse.

“We are all ice-dependent species.”

If you stumbled across an alarming chart about sea ice on Twitter last month and doomsday scenarios immediately leaped into your head, you’re not alone.

What the graph illustrates is true: There’s substantially less sea ice in the world than ever before. The Arctic ― and, for completely unrelated reasons, the Antarctic ― just closed out November with less ice than any other year in history.

But the real cause for alarm isn’t last month’s warming blip in the Arctic that temporarily stalled ice growth, an anomaly that happens from time to time. Nor is it the concurrent loss of ice in the Antarctic ― since, to the best of our knowledge, the behavior of sea ice in one hemisphere has nothing to do with the behavior of sea ice in the other.

The scariest part of all this is the long-term warming trend it follows.
